Giorgio Armani Jacquard Eye Palette 2 Grey Eyes Swatches and Look


Hey everyone!!

I want to welcome everyone who recently joined So Lonely in Gorgeous, hi guys :D isn't Bloghop great!? It really means a lot to me that you've taken an interest in my blog and I'm looking forward to future friendships.

Yesterday, as I was rummaging through my eye shadow drawers(getting ready to go out), I came upon the Giorgio Armani Jacquard Grey Eyes Palette. I purchased this palette last year, but I never got around to using it. So, in keeping with my New Year's Resolution of using everything in my collection, I decided use my Giorgio Armani Jacquard Grey Eyes Palette for last nights look.

Here are swatches of the palette :)

 Color description from left to right

A silvered white with a sparkly pearl finish.

A shimmery pale silvered grey lilac.

A shimmery sandy taupe with a grayed mauve tinge.

A russet brick red with micro silver flecks.

Sorry for the slight blur, but these photo's where taken well after 2:00 am.


Frankly speaking, I prefer the Jacquard Grey Eyes Palette a bit then the Green Eyes Palette, and...I'm a girl who loves her green and purple shadows...oh, yes I do!

I was about to wash my face, when I decided to give it another go and try to get a better picture of my look. Still failed but at least it's not as orange...right??? :)


To my surprise, the Giorgio Armani Jacquard 2 Palette in Grey Eyes is still available. Odd, since the colors in this palette are AMAZING!!!! The taupe and brick eyeshadows alone are worth getting palette...actually the silvered grey lilac is very pretty too. This palette retails for $59 and is available at: nordstrom.com, giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com and neimanmarcus.com.

    1. Thank you Louise, but I think these kind of colors would look lovely on you as well. You may not feel comfortable in them, but that doesn't mean it doesn't look good!! If you have blue eyes, reddish brown shadows will really make them POP.
